Stinky Breath Is a Sign of Dental Disease

A smelly mouth is one of the first signs of dental disease.  By the age of three years, over 80% of pets show signs of dental disease.  Signs include plaque, tartar, gingivitis, tooth decay and often much worse periodontal disease.  Regular dental hygiene is an important factor in maintaining your pet’s overall health and well being.  We are here to help you to maintain your pet’s oral health care so that they can enjoy pain-free meals, treats, and playtime activities.

This winter season, we are promoting dental health care with a 15% discount (up to $200) off dental procedures until March 31, 2020.  This program is super popular, and we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.  Give us a call at 416.537.3128 for a preliminary dental exam appointment with your veterinarian.

Periodontal Disease
Foul breath usually indicates an oral problem, and the sooner you have it treated by your veterinarian, the sooner you and your pet can smile proudly. Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissue surrounding the teeth that take hold in progressive stages. If plaque and tartar buildup continues unchecked, an infection can form around the root of the tooth. In the final stages of periodontal disease, the tissues surrounding the tooth are destroyed, the bone and tissue supporting the tooth erode, and the tooth becomes loose. It is a very painful process for your four-legged friend, but these problems can be averted before they even start.

Gently flip a lip. Take a peek inside if your dog or cat will allow you to do so.  Do you see red gums, and/or a build-up of tartar in their mouth? Do you smell a foul odour in there? If so, give us a call at 416.537.3128 to book a professional assessment of your pet’s dental care needs.

Each dental patient will receive a complimentary home-care kit filled with tasty treats to make home care easier for you.  During a follow-up appointment, a Registered Veterinary Technician will demonstrate how to care for your pet’s teeth at home. If deemed an appropriate diet for your pet, you may receive a complimentary bag of Hill’s T/D for tartar control. This is our most popular diet. It’s super tasty, and it works!

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 416-537-3128. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday & Friday: 8:30 am – 7:00 pm, Tuesday to Thursday: 8:30 am – 6:00 pm and Saturday: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
